    240 300 CANADIAN 6 CYLINDER

    With bordem set in and nothing to do i have found both a 240 and 300 ford canadian f truck engines,just something different from the usual v8 s and crossys,with just a bit of research the only apparent differance between them is the crank n rods ,head is the same ,and all bolt ons except carby was a tad smaller but in saying that,the guy has a complete 240 and a 300 in pieces so i figure cause its gunna get a strip down anyway lets just chux the 300 crank n rods in it with new go fast bits from america,like the offy 4 barrel intake and juicy billet dizzy,i think thom once told me the 300 has a small block v8 bellhousing pattern ?

    Nope, 2V heads were an Aussie thing, because Ford US only saw V8s as being worthy of performance upgrades. To them, the 6 was the basic cooking model and if you want power, buy a V8. Pontiac tried to make a sweet OHC inline 6 but GM kinda self-sabotaged it because they didn't want it to upstage their V8 models in the end. There were inline 6 Ford nuts over there who'd go seeking out Aussie 2V heads to put on their motors, but in the last few years a mob (Classic Inlines I think) has tooled up and made basically a replica of the Aussie head but in alloy.

    Nah mate, bore spacing and head bolts won't be the same, probably water jacket issues too. You'd think of these engines as a "big block 6". It would be like trying to bolt a clevo head onto a 460 Even bolting a crossy head onto an early log head 200 block is a task. Some crazy guys have done it in the States but gotta ask... Why?

    Ideal situation would be to have one of each, so you could grab the head off the 240 and plonk it in the 300 for an instant compression boost. With so many aftermarket cylinder heads available for other relatively low-volume engines (like Pontiacs and AMCs, etc), I'm surprised that someone hasn't done a cross-flow, Cleveland-based head for this engine family recently. There were millions of these things pumped out and have steadily built a cult following. It's much easier to make castings now with CAD, rapid prototyping and 3D printing of moulds, etc. Sent from my CPH1920 using Tapatalk

    It has 70000miles on it original he says ,being a 7 ton f truck I would say it's a 300 and not a 240 God knows what I'm Gunnar do with it, but I do no a rebuild kit is very very cheap so will be interesting when I strip it down ,being low miles might not even need a re bore Sent from my SM-A125F using Tapatalk

    When i found that good 2nd hand 400 quite a few had their chance to grab it but snubbed it,all the bullshit i had read over 30 years about the 351m/400 is not true the 400 is great to arc up a bit with fresh parts it hammerd . Sent from my SM-G610Y using Tapatalk

    It might fit in a Falcon engine bay if you use a slim radiator or move it in front of the support panel. Only one way to know I guess... There was a Maverick (not the 4x4) in the States getting around with one of these in it, and they share the same kind of front end as Falcon/Mustang. It was a pretty potent drag car, was turbo too. Stock internals except for valve springs. Not even rebuilt after 110k miles, runs 25 psi and does high 10s all day And here's another Mav with that motor, but this time atmo with triple Webers and much more done internally.

    Ford US did some funny things in the 70s, they put 400s into cars as well as F-series, so you'd think theyd've shoehorned the 300 into a large car (using this same approach) but no... These big block 6s only went into trucks, industrial vehicles, pumps, airport tugs, etc. so maybe the mounts will pose a bit of a problem going into a Falcon. The length could be another problem: they're at least 2" longer than a crossy. Probably comparable to a Chrysler hemi 6, with both having similar bore sizes, thus spacing.

    I believe 390 FE pistons are feasible with an overbore and raise comp height to a reasonable amount, also 240 heads have smaller chambers so are a good boost for compression on a 300. Biggest bottleneck for performance is the heads. They can't be ported much and valve size is limited by their placement and chamber shape. Hence the clevo and LS Frankenstein combos that pop up occasionally. I dunno where you find these oddball engines Chestnut but kudos to you for having that ability.

    Apparently the one doing the rounds of web with ls heads was modified with a hacksaw and "welded" with epoxy.

    yeah very cool...they have a good following in the states.... if you need any bits, i have 2 x 240's sitting here, that will soon be scraped..one from a D series truck and the other from F100 (im in melb though) looking forward to the build cheers Warren
